Welcome to Matera! Are you ready for an unforgettable journey back in time? It will be a pleasure for me to plunge you into the beauty of an ancient city telling you its history, architecture and secrets. We’ll start from Piazza Vittorio Veneto where you’ll get an introduction about how the Sassi were born. We’ll walk through the typical tiny streets showing you the places where Pier Paolo Pasolini and Mel Gibson shot their movies. You’ll experience the sensation of walking in the ancient Jerusalem! And finally, you’ll discover the reason why Matera was included into the list of Unesco World Heritage sites: the brilliant and surprising way local people solved the problem of the lack of water. How? Well, we’ll visit together a big underground water cistern of the past. It's a private place which was ristored in 2005 in order to let visitors understand how the ancient system of rain water collection worked. If you don't want to lose yourself in the labyrinth of the Sassi, follow me and don’t miss this exciting walk!
